That's the reason I bought a Squier Strat instead of a Fender... I was going to drop $1500 on an American made Strat. I compared the Indonesian made Squier and the Fender. To my suprise, the Squier played better, feel and tone, than the Fender. I couldn't believe it, nor at that point could I justify the price of the Fender. I put about $500 worth of upgrades... trees, pickups, bridge, etc. a little work on the neck that I would have done to the Fender anyway and I wound up with a really hot guitar. Initial cost $129 @ GC... If I ever get tired of it it I'll just strip it and use it as a stage prop for demolition. Go get another and do it all over again. Of course this one was probably a one of a kind fluke and the next one will be cheap crap like it's supposed to be.
